Deployment Frameworks


The documentation is currently under significant re-development. Existing content is a placeholder and will be updated very soon.

  • Deployment Frameworks define the necessary routines, macros and functions (link to this section) to construct the output file types used by hamlet to deploy to a chosen provider

  • Not all provider frameworks expose the full potential of that provider

  • by implementing multiple frameworks that interact with a provider, hamlet is then capable of orchestrating the best, simplest or sometimes only method of a desired configuration

  • hamlet can then incorporate cloud provider configurations no matter how they are offered to end users

  • hamlet internally uses the “default” deployment framework which is defined within the shared provider

  • Additional Deployment Frameworks can be added to hamlet by way of engine plugins (link)

Deployment Framework Features

  • Deployment Frameworks must define their output types
    • as well as all supporting functions and macros for their generation
  • They also may optionally define data models (link to models docs) relevant to that provider and framework
